2020 Nissan Maxima Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 2020 Nissan Maximas?

Is It Time For 2020 Nissan Maxima Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2020 Nissan Maxima, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Maxima bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2020 Nissan Maxima in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Maxima steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan Maxima Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2020 Nissan Maxima’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Maxima’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2020 Nissan Maxima’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2020 Maxima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Maxima? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • Does my Nissan Maxima power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
